Bb Annotate is supported on current versions of Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.

On the Assignment Submission page, supported file types open in the browser. You can view and annotate these document types in the browser:

  • Word (DOC, DOCX)
  • PowerPoint(PPT, PPTX)
  • Excel(XLS, XLSM, XLSX)
  • OpenOffice Documents (ODS, ODT, ODP)
  • Images
    • Digital Images (JPEG, JPG, PNG, TIF, TIFF, TGA, BMP)
    • Medical Images (DICOM, DICM, DCM)
    • Photoshop files (PSD)

Original formatting and embedded images are preserved.

HEIC image files currently do not render in Bb Annotate. This issue also occurs with the older Box commenting tool.

Important Notes

  • If a student submitted an unsupported file, you're prompted to download it.
  • Assignment submissions created through the Blackboard course content editor aren't compatible with inline grading.
